Dear University! Thai blessing hath remained, 

Thi/ .inns right loyally Dishonor ne'er hath stained 

Thy praises sing. Thy record fair. 

For thre. our Mother dew. Still Carolina's pride. 

May every coming year .Still with her best allied. 

Fresh-crowned with joy appear, Her sons from far and u-idi 

Fresh honors bring. Still houst thy rare. 

Heaven blessed the genial ray Fair may Ihy hours roll on. 

Of dial October diy. As numbering one by one 

When nl Ihy shrine, Thy tuneful bell 

Under tin poplar shade, Now rings for duties dom 

Their coirs our fathers paid. Now calls to honors iron. 

'Thy comer stone llwy laid (Jr. for Ihy comrade gone 

With rites divine. Tolls out a knell. 

O! Thou, whose promise nerred 

Our fathers, when they served 

For Liberty, 
Still be their children's God. 
Still with thy staff and rod 
Show us the path they trod, 
The path to Thee.
